Hi Pete,

We’ve had a Spark EV since January. We’re happy with it. There are some minor nuisances, such as the stupid radio, the various honking when plugging in/unplugging. The back seats have a surprising amount of space. It is a smoother and quieter ride than our Think, but I still prefer the Think because it’s much cuter. :)

With the colder weather the range instruments estimates 57 miles currently. It may be that our daughter (the main driver on it) cranks up the heat all the way. It was close to 100 miles in the summer. When I see the cold-weather range I’m glad we leased that car.  

Feel free to shoot me specific questions, if you have any.
